Maximise Your Swagbucks, Canada!
Joining Swagbucks is a really neat and simple way for Canadians to make some money online.
Maybe you've already heard about this opportunity and wondered if it's legitimate or not? After all, many of us already know that there are a lot of "money making scams" on the Internet these days, so it is quite natural to be skeptical.
Well, the great news is that I have found this to be not only legitimate, but it is perfectly safe to use, 100% free, and it's FUN! I can vouch for that personally.
And so for that reason, I have no hesitation in recommending it as just one of the ways to make money online in Canada.
How Does it Work?
Well, essentially Swagbucks is an online portal that helps you earn what they call "digital dollars" which can be redeemed for cash, gift cards and a range of other rewards from the Swag Store.
With no strings attached and no membership fees, Swagbucks.com has already rewarded members across the US, Canada and the UK with over $25 Million in prizes.
Can you get rich by using Swagbucks? No, absolutely not. But you could certainly earn $500 per year or more just by doing things that you already do, such as surfing the Internet and watching videos, for example. Just think of it as a fun way to earn some extra pocket money!
The thing I love most about Swagbucks is that you can redeem your digital dollars for Amazon.ca gift cards. You only need 3,150 Swag Bucks to qualify for a $25 Amazon.ca e-Gift Certificate. However, it's a good idea to keep collecting the points until you can redeem them for a $500 gift card (52,000 Swag Bucks) because you really do get a "bigger bang for your buck".
Just think of all the free books, DVDs, kitchen accessories and gifts that you could get with a FREE $500 Amazon.ca gift certificate! Not only would you have a fun shopping spree, but you could also really maximize the shopping haul by finding some Amazon.ca coupons - they often yield very big discounts!
How to Sign Up
Simply register for FREE at the Swagbucks website and earn 30 Swag Bucks right away. Please note that each person is allowed to have one account, and so it is OK for other members of your household to sign up, too.
Once you have signed up, you can start earning Swag Bucks for your online activity.
Then, when you have earned enough rewards points, simply cash them in for 1000s of excellent prizes including gift cards, electronics and more.

Top Tips to Earn More
Here are a few tips that I've learned along the way:
- The best and easiest way to earn your digital dollars is to use their search engine to surf the Internet, just as you would do normally. When you visit the Swagbucks homepage you will notice that it looks like a search engine, quite similar to the interface of Google or Bing.
- Search the web in a normal fashion and you will be rewarded with points every second or third search (note that you cannot "fool" the system - they need to be natural searches!) You might receive 5-10 Swag Buck rewards for every few searches that you do.
- The quick way to earn 30 Swag Bucks per month is to take the daily poll, where you get one point for submitting your vote. It only takes a moment and it's very easy to get into the habit of doing it every day.
- For an easy 1-5 Swag Points, find a few videos that interest you. When you watch them, you will notice that the meter fills up which means that you have to commit to watching a good portion of each video before being credited with the reward points. Not every video will qualify. This is an easy activity to take part in because you can be doing something else at the same time and just have the videos running in the background.
- There are many free games available to play and you can earn up to 5 Swag Bucks just for partaking in one of them. You can even play against other Swagbucks members and possibly earn thousands of Swag Bucks in prizes!
- Answering surveys can potentially reward you with a nice amount of points, however you have to qualify for each survey and that's not always easy to do. From time to time, just visit the "trusted survey" section and see if there are any available surveys to take.
- From time to time you can try out some free offers to earn more reward points. Some of these offers require you to submit certain information about yourself and so it's important to only sign up for the offers that interest you.
- The best kind of offers are the "no obligation special offers", because you can earn reward points just for looking at them and you don't have to sign up to anything.
- Find Swag Codes! They are hidden messages or strings of text that are contained within the Swagbucks.com website and blog. If you find a Swag Code then you can redeem it for big Swag Buck rewards! These codes can turn up anywhere, and at any time, within the Swag Bucks network. The best place to start looking for a Swag Code is on their official blog site.
- Another great way to earn gift cards and other prizes is to tell your friends about how they too can make money using Swagbucks. You will need to make sure that you give them your referral link (under the "my referrals" section of your account), and that way you will earn points whenever they do!
